RE: [EnGarde] Re: Dynamic SMTP Sending. Help!

Your configuration looks OK; restart syslog, and make sure it saw the signal:

[root_at_spruce postfix]# killall -HUP syslog-ng
[root_at_spruce postfix]# tail /var/log/messages
Sep 30 09:38:24 spruce syslog-ng[405]: SIGHUP received, restarting syslog-ng
Sep 30 09:38:24 spruce syslog-ng[405]: new configuration initialized

You can check the following, too:

[root_at_spruce postfix]# ls -l /var/log/pop-imap-login.log
prw------- 1 root root 0 Sep 30 09:32
/var/log/pop-imap-login.log

If everything looks OK, stop the daemon, cat /var/log/pop-imap-login.log,
and cause some pop/imap activity. You should see something appear. If you
do not, Ctrl+C and tail /var/log/mail.log and see if the activity was
recorded there.

Once this part works, you should be home free.

Again, let me know.
Marcus
